Anemone virginiana

Anemone virginiana


Anemone virginiana is a spring-blooming anemone. It grows up to 2' tall (sometimes taller in the wild) and typically occurs in rocky or dry open woods or wooded slopes. One inch diameter flowers are borne on erect stems above the foliage and feature five, white, petal-like sepals and a thimble-like, center mound of yellowish stamens. Flowers give way to thimble-shaped seed heads which remain on the plants well into winter. Three-parted leaves may carry a reddish tinge late into the season.



Easily grown in average, dry to medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Tolerates full shade. Prefers moist, sandy-humusy soils. Not as aggressive as most other anemone species.
